Mental Health and Wellbeing

Our Mental Health and Wellbeing Support Team are; Mrs Judy Burridge, Miss Leanne Dixon and Mrs Jenny Lamb.

 

Our vision is to support each child’s holistic wellbeing by:

- Raising awareness of mental health and emotional wellbeing as an open and positive topic.

- Promoting positive physical and emotional development and the link between them.

- Recognising and addressing concerns as they arise.

- Supporting children and their families in implementing effective coping strategies.

- Supporting our children in developing the 5 Ways to Wellbeing.

 

The 5 Ways to Wellbeing are:

1.Connect with other people.

2.Be physically active

3.Learn new skills.

4.Give to others.

5.Pay attention to the present moment (mindfulness)

 

We aim to achieve this through:

- Education for staff, families and the children through assemblies, PSHCE lessons, workshops and effective links to Mental Health support groups and charities

- Effective communication across the school community

- Having an allocated Mental Health and Wellbeing Support Team

- Introducing coping mechanisms through Mental Health events, assemblies and class activities, as well as 1-1/group support sessions
